Book Description

1 Mar 2012
It was hailed as "unsinkable", the biggest ship in the world, the ultimate in seafaring luxury. Yet within five days of setting off from Southampton on its maiden voyage, Titanic had sunk to the bottom of the sea with the loss of over 1,500 lives. A century on, the fate of the Titanic remains the worst disaster in seafaring history. Dozens of books have charted the all-too-short life of Titanic but this is the first to contain 30 fascinating facsimile items of Titanic memorabilia. These give the reader a unique and compelling insight into life on board Titanic as she ventured out into the icy seas of the North Atlantic in April 1912 and include: the clearance form authorizing Titanic to set sail; the ticket belonging Father Frank Browne; telegrams sent to and from Titanic on the night of the collision; and, a condolence telegram sent to US President William H Taft.

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars great book 20 Feb 2014
By shyodeen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is pretty complete, to be honest everything ive seen on the titantic would get four or five stars. I own about 8 books on the titantic and they all are done very well. There is a childrens book out there that has cutaway pictures that look like a dollhouse with little people that one is something different to consider if you have young children that are into it too, otherwise I reccomend this book.
